Many years ago I used to collect Itacolumite (flexible sandstone) from a location near Pine Mountain in Georgia. I can't remember the name fo the little community, but you could drive down the railroad tracks to an exposure and collect slabs of the rock. About 5 years ago I tried to relocate this site, but the railroads in the area had been removed, and there were so many houses in the area now, that I couldn't find it. I did think I was about in about the correct area, but couldn't say for certain.

Does anyone have any idea where this outcrop might be located? I would love to collect some samples for my Earth Science classes.

Have you made any progress on your search? Can you please provide approximate gps coordinates? I am a student at UGA studying to be a middle grades Science teacher and am interested in acquiring some as well. Thanks.
